I did the conversion a few months back, when I was looking at the RB demo. I
recall it seeming to work fine.
However, I've had to reinstall since then ( Murphy ate my hard drive ), and
I didn't
reload Report Builder since we decided to go with FastReport and not buy RB.
However, if I remember correctly, the conversion to Delphi 5 was the usual
trivial commenting out
of the variants unit, etc that you find in any delphi 6 package. I have
never downloaded
a delphi 6 package that took more than 5 minutes to get running in Delphi 5,
as there
are really only a few differences. If you can't get it working, let me
know, and I'll
*try* to find time to put the RB demo back in and take a look at it for you.

If anyone else out there has converted the IBOPipeline components to Delphi
5, this is your chance to
help ol' Chris out...
